His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has congratulated His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi on his 40th anniversary of leading the Emirate of Ajman.

His Highness, the Ruler of Ajman and Supreme Council Member, assumed his role four decades ago on September 6, 1981.

Sheikh Humaid became Crown Prince of Ajman in 1960 under the reign of his late father, His Highness Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi who ruled Ajman from 1928 until 1981.

Sheikh Rashid was one of the founding fathers of the UAE, something which Sheikh Humaid assisted his father with.


In his tribute to the Ajman Ruler on his 40-year milestone, Sheikh Mohammed noted Sheikh Humaid was a partner in building the foundation of the UAE.

“As a partner and founder in the process of building the UAE, he etched his name in the history of our country,” the Dubai Ruler said.

In the video Sheikh Mohammed shared to Instagram with his 5.9 million followers, a series of clips and photos of Sheikh Humaid are seen throughout the years.

Photos of His Highness with the late Sheikh Zayed, founder of the UAE, are included, as well as footage of the Ajman Ruler with His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE.

Other clips also include Sheikh Humaid with the Dubai Ruler, with His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and other UAE leaders.

As noted by WAM, the UAE’s state news agency, in his 40 years as Ajman Ruler he has “witnessed significant development in all areas, sectors and fronts, due to the wise vision, solid determination and appropriate planning to create a modern emirate”.
